Britain in Bloom

We’re entering Rawtenstall into the Large Town Category of Britain in Bloom in 2016. With ten specific gardens identified we urgently need your help to reclaim these areas after the exceptionally wet winter. In 2013 we achieved Silver Gilt and as we were only 4 points short of Gold, we intend to reach that elusive goal this year!

Britain in Bloom 2013

Our campaign is entitled ‘The Town Gardener – could this be you?‘ Our aim is to encourage anyone and everyone to get involved regardless of whether you’ve never used a trowel in your life or you’re a retired professional!

This initiative is for the benefit of the whole community, to promote pride in our town and make it a cleaner greener place to live work or run a business.

Volunteering with Civic Pride offers fantastic opportunities to meet new people, develop new skills and prove that we’re a town on the up! We’re buzzing with the prospect of building on what we’ve achieved over the last few years but now we need your help.

Did you volunteer with us in the past but drifted away because of other commitments?  Have you never had the time until now?  Could you help us just for the next 3 months?  Even a hour a week will make a great big difference.  Call Helen now on 07955110199 or email

The Free Press know we’re here, BBC Radio Lancashire know we’re here, The RHS knows we’re here so roll up your sleeves and help us put Rossendale on the map!
